    DescriptionThe Greek World 479-323 BC has been an indispensable guide to classical Greek history since its first publication. Now Simon Hornblower has comprehensively rewritten and revised his original text, bringing it up to date for a new generation of readers. The extensive changes made include the addition of two important new chapters - on Argos, and the Peloponnesian War - and the incorporation of further primary sources. Also new are more than thirty illustrations, the insertion of user-friendly subheadings, and a completely updated bibliography. With valuable coverage of the broader Mediterranean world in which Greek culture flourished, as well as close examination of Athens, Sparta, and the other great city-states of Greece itself, this third edition of a classic work is a more essential read than ever.
